Seasonal Influenza

Annual immunization for influenza is an effective method of preventing illness from the influenza virus and its complications.

Each year, Public Health supports health care professionals in Niagara implementing the Universal Influenza Immunization Program by providing:

  • A pre-determined allotment of influenza vaccine so high priority groups can be immunized first
  • Additional influenza vaccines based on subsequent orders
  • Information regarding the influenza vaccine products, supply and distribution
  • Details on local flu activity and surveillance

Ordering the Influenza Vaccine
